I've been looking for smooth, crisp, old-fashioned percale sheets for so long. These are everything I've been wanting. They are just like the ones I remember from my childhood. They almost crackle when you unfold them. They're NOTHING like the flimsy, limpy, hot sateen ones you see everywhere now. A high thread-count does NOT mean crisp. You can buy 1000 thread-count and you get "limp". Percale with a 300 thread-count like these sheets is absolutely perfect. It's a nice, dense, smooth weave with a beautiful crispness. I got the white-on-white color in king-size. The fitted sheet fits a very thick mattress easily. The flat sheet is huge. The pillowcases fit king-size pillows with a generous amount left over to show the pretty design on the end. Wash the sheets and pillowcases by themselves in cold or warm water with a minimum amount of detergent and NO fabric softener. Fabric softener puts a film on the sheets and eventually changes the actual texture of the threads. If your machine has an extra rinse cycle, use it. Dry them on a delicate setting and take them right out as soon as the dryer stops. Better yet, hang them outside in the fresh air for a heavenly smell. I got rid of all of my old sheets and will be ordering additional sets of these beauties.
OK. So when it comes to sheets you have to understand what you are asking for. When I say that I want smooth crisp sheets, I do not necessarily mean soft. I want crackly (not starched), smooth sheets. If you want soft sheets go with a sateen, they are less wrinkle but they come at the price of being limp. Percale sheets are more likely to be crisp and these fit the bill. These are going to be a loud wrinkly mess coming out of the washer and you will need to work on them. I am willing to hang dry and iron my sheets to get the feel that I want. These sheets will not make you happy if you are not OK with that. I have not tried these sheets in the dryer yet, not really sure if I want to. One reviewer said that they were like paper that you have scrunched into a ball and tried to make flat and she was right. That is what I wanted because I am willing to iron them to make them smooth. The result is a sheet that is the crispiest that I have had since my grandma’s house as a kid. If you do not have the time or desire to spend the time on the sheets or you want no wrinkles right out of the dryer, these are not the ones for you. I, however am about to buy two more sets so that I can always have a set ready and waiting. I am so happy to have finally found my dream sheets!

I love crisp cool sheets and they are harder to find. So many sheets are limp and warm no matter the thread count or the cost. For me, these percales are great.
Yes, they are crisp,cool and silky smooth. They sound and feel starched and I think they feel fabulous. I run away fast when I hear a sheet described as soft instead of smooth. Dry the flat sheet by itself, the fitted sheet by itself and then the pillowcases. It doesn't take any more time and it cuts down on the wrinkles by not having so much in the dryer at one time. I dry all my sheets this way. I also keep a clean tennis ball in my dryer and that helps with wrinkles also. Take sheets out of the dryer as soon as the cycle is finished.
If you have trouble sleeping when you are too warm then these sheets help keep you cooler. I have paid twice as much for percales. These are a good buy>

These sheets are similar to what our mother used to buy in the 60's: crisp, cotton, cool sheets that do not hug your body. My sister and I have been looking for them for years. They are, in my opinion, the perfect cotton sheets. Some of the other reviews say they are noisy however I would not call them noisy, they are just not the sateen style that are super quiet. And they do not mold to your body like sateen does. In fact, that is exactly what I love about them. After the first wash (always wash before sleeping on them), they are simple perfection. As a side bar, these sheets are healthier for you as they easily absorb moisture that you emit during the night where sateen tends to repel moisture. I became a linen fanatic 10 or so years ago so am always on the hunt for the perfect cotton sheets. These are a WINNER!

I had read many of the reviews about this product and can honestly say there was maybe 2 accurate. True: these sheets come out of the dryer unbelievably wrinkled, crinkled and looking like you took a sheet of paper and crunched it up in a ball then tried to flatten it out. These are not percale sheets! I would also state that percale sheets do not have a stretch factor. These sheets actually have a stretch or give like fabric used in stretch trousers. I can't imagine anyone giving these a good review.

You get what you pay for. The sheets were very thin and did not appear they would hold up very well if used every other week. They might work out well for a shopper needing an inexpensive sheet set for a guest bed that would not be used very much. I sent them back.
I've been looking forever for cool, crisp sheets - like the ones my mother had, and not only do these fit the bill, they are well priced! The only difference between these and Mom's are that they're a little thinner, but they still seem like they'll last a good long time. Some other reviewers commented on the odor when first received. I ordered one set in November, and another in January. No issues whatsoever in November's -- they were fine. The ones I just received in January had a strong chemical smell and I washed them 3 times before I was satisfied they're OK. (That's why I dropped my rating from 5 to 4 stars.) Haven't slept on them yet, but if there's still a lingering problem, I think it can be resolved with another couple of washes. They wrinkle a fair amount, but that hasn't bothered me. If you have a really deep mattress, you may want to check measurements. I have an iComfort, which is memory foam and therefore not as deep as a pillow-top and the bottom sheet fits well. Pillowcases are probably a little smaller than I'm used to, but are adequate on standard sized pillows. Frankly, I'm so pleased to finally have found sheets that feel cool and crisp that the issues I've found are inconsequential. Witness the fact I ordered a second set.
If you are looking for "Grandma Sheets", give up. They don't exist anymore.
If you will consider settling for a good-looking, breathable cotton sheet that feels crisp and not slimy, these might make you happy.
Yes, the embroidery wrinkles after washing which is to be expected. It's the nature of the beast and a given. A few minutes with a steam iron pretties up the cases and flat sheet's top hem if you just can't sleep otherwise.
Yes, the fabric is perhaps 50% thinner than percale used to be. The white on white set allows you to see your hand inside the pillowcase which may mean they will wear out more frequently than in the past. The size of both sheets and pillowcase is ample even after washing and drying on high heat. (Would love to be able to dry things outside again but that's a no-no in this community.)
The bottom line is that this sheet set is a well-fitting, reasonably priced 100% cotton percale with a crisp, cool hand and an acceptable comfort rating. The jury is out on how long they will last.
